Horoscopes for May 23, 2014

By From page B13 | May 23, 2014

It’s a split-toned day. The Pisces moon rules first, moving our minds and hearts in waves. Self-expression and connection will be the focus as we try to figure out the underlying emotions of each development. “Why” will be more important than “what” early in the day, until the high-energy, action-oriented Aries moon changes all of that.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Presentation will count big-time. Whether you are bringing your ideas to one person or a large group, your level of success will depend on your ability to communicate them well.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You’ll encounter a discriminatory and unfair arrangement. You are the perfect person to turn the situation around, though! This one will take time. For now, gather the facts.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Personal trainers instruct their clients to keep working a muscle until they “feel the burn.” You’ll feel the burn in some way today and should interpret the feeling as a sign that you’re getting healthier and stronger.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). You’ll apply tips and inside information strategically because you are hungry to make a change. Those who know what they are supposed to do but don’t act will be inspired and motivated by you.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). In some key way, you are different from the other people in the room. You will use this to your advantage. Your differences will give you a competitive edge as long as you see them as assets.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Once you quiet your mind, you’ll be extremely intuitive. Pay attention to the nuances of this afternoon’s situation. Your success will depend on your ability to read the room correctly.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Interpret the problems you encounter as feedback to help you improve. Nothing is a failure unless you choose to see it that way. Your friends are as much a source of help as your rivals are.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You are a skilled and powerful player in today’s game. You will lead in such a way that people barely feel the force of it. You’ll gently guide the action and gain support from many sides.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). A scene will improve when a non-threatening and encouraging person steps in to help. You will play the role for someone else later, but right now it’s your turn to graciously receive.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Get the job done. For now, don’t worry about getting it done “just right.” The big picture is what will count to most of the people in today’s audience.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). When you know the rules very, very well, you can break them. Until then, you’ll enjoy learning all you can about the way things work and abiding by the established laws and boundaries.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). There’s something you did in the past that worked well for you that you’ve since stopped doing. It’s time to pick up that skill, habit or tool again, because it will be even more effective this time around.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY. Your habit of finding the good in people will bring about a surprise in June, a very social and exciting month. The end of a job comes in July, and you’ll use what you learned to start a new venture. Be ready to change paddles midstream and adapt accordingly. August and November bring lots of activity for your love life. Aries and Scorpio people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 10, 22, 40, 17 and 11.

WEEKEND LOVE FORECAST: ARIES: You know best. How would you advise a person in your position? Take your own advice. TAURUS: You won’t attract that certain someone through your efforts; you will attract this person by not making an effort. GEMINI: Tell the truth, but not the blunt truth. Warm into it. CANCER: It takes a lot to impress you these days, but someone will manage it. LEO: An impulsive move will work out brilliantly. VIRGO: You’ll keep your feelings guarded in order to present yourself the way you really want to be seen. LIBRA: Instead of letting your imagination spin about what a person might be like, observe closely and learn what he or she is really like. SCORPIO: Be the host. It puts you in an excellent light, and you’ll be appreciated for all of the work you put in. SAGITTARIUS: Forget your limitations. Just ignore them. You’ll love what happens because you decided to forget. CAPRICORN: There’s no need to be rash in matters of love. Have patience. AQUARIUS: Get out of your comfort zone more often, and you’ll have less social fear. PISCES: Stay present with your love. The bonding happens one moment at a time.

COUPLE OF THE WEEKEND: The Gemini sun and the Aries moon spark an attraction between this air-and-fire coupling. The hardest part will be deciding what to do together. They both have a number of exciting ideas, and narrowing down the choices will be a collaborative activity in and of itself. Short dates work best for this high-energy pairing. They need time away to miss each other.
